How Acupuncture Help Dermatological Disorders

Acupuncture has been used to treat a variety of dermatological conditions, including eczema, psoriasis, acne, and hives. Here are some ways that acupuncture may help with these conditions:

  1. Regulating the immune system: Acupuncture has been shown to modulate the immune system, reducing inflammation and allergic reactions that can contribute to skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

  2. Improving circulation: Acupuncture can increase blood flow to the skin, improving oxygen and nutrient delivery and promoting healing.

  3. Reducing stress: Stress can exacerbate skin conditions like acne and eczema, and acupuncture has been shown to reduce stress and promote relaxation.

  4. Balancing hormones: Hormonal imbalances can contribute to acne and other skin conditions, and acupuncture can help balance hormones by regulating the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis.

  5. Stimulating collagen production: Acupuncture can stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that helps maintain skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

 

It's important to note that acupuncture should be used in conjunction with other treatments for dermatological conditions and should be performed by a qualified acupuncturist.
